Twenty two years ago, Tiger Woods won the 1997 Masters using a Scotty Cameron Newport TeI3 putter, which had a face insert made of Teryllium and the iconic domino-like pattern with white dots in the back cavity. To this day, Teryllium remains “the number one material request I get from players,” according to Scotty Cameron, and players such as Brooks Koepka use a Scotty Cameron prototype putter with a face insert made from the material.
On Monday, Scotty Cameron announced a limited release of reimagined Teryllium putters, called T22, in three different models: Teryllium T22 Newport, Newport 2 and Fastback 1.5. The company says it is the first Fastback 1.5 model to have a Teryllium face insert.
The 2019 T22 versions are precision milled in the United States from 303 stainless steel, they have a matte black finish, and they feature the iconic white dots in the back cavity. Also, the new Teryllium inlay constructions have improved vibration dampening, according to the company, as well as removable sole weights and overall increased head weights compared to the original TeI3 putters from 1997.
“There’s nothing quite like the feel of Teryllium,” Scotty Cameron said in a press release. “T22 gave us the opportunity to take everything we’ve learned over the past two decades and refine the entire look, feel and performance. Like a modern day muscle car, everything looks original at first glance, but each component is brand new. Better milling. Better materials. Better construction. They’re made to game.”
The putters come with a Pistolini Plus grip that has copper paintfill, and the grip design is thicker in the lower hand area giving the grip less taper. The limited-release putters will be available on August 16 at Titleist-authorized golf shops worldwide, and they will sell for $599 each.
